Kenneth Noland's abstract paintings are clear: the colour is the subject. Noland has long since been an exponent of Colour Field Painting and throughout his career has relied on a variety of shapes and patterns, notably circles, stripes and chevrons, to bring out his paintings. Often Noland creates paintings using contrasting colours as a base, or background, in order that the combination with the superimposed colours give off an energy or a type of optical vibration. Noland also plays with the shape of the canvas, a techinique which certainly causes the eye to focus within the boundaries and absorb more colour.
Artist: Kenneth Noland
Twelve of Kenneth Nolands works are currently on exhibition until January 21st at the Galleria Fumagalli in Bergamo.
